April 22, 2003 -- EPA joined other federal exhibitors for an exciting Girl Scout event focused on Science at the National Aeronautics And Space Administration (NASA) Goddard Space Center on April 5.

EPA's exhibits included the Enviroscape (watershed) model and a macroinvertebrate display. This event attracted approximately 1,000 visitors, including 700 Girl Scouts and 300 siblings, parents and troop leaders.

The Goddard event was one of several events EPA has participated in over the last several years through the Girl Scout USA (GSUSA) "Linking the Girls to the Land" Initiative, which is a partnership between GSUSA and Federal agencies.

This program provides Girl Scouts with exposure to the sciences, hands-on conservation activities, and career opportunities. As part of this partnership, EPA sponsors a Watershed Patch Project, which includes watershed stewardship activities for Girl Scouts of all ages.

A new video that showcases this wonderful partnership effort is now available. For more information, contact Patty Scott at scott.patricia@epa.gov or Laura Phillips phillips.laura@epa.gov in EPA's Office of Water.
